Cimburrio is an almost two century old small chapel built inside the Tabaco City Public Cemetery, these is were the mortal remains we're blessed before they buried to the graves.
There was also a story that this was built to deter the spread of cholera and other contagious disease during the cholera outbreak in the 1800s, whereas, the need of bringing the deceased to the main parish is prevented because the ceremonies is done directly inside the cemetery.
A national cultural treasure we should protect and to be proud of in #AlbayONE.
